Transcript of Hutu African Tribe

Hutu African Tribe Map and Location The location of Hutu is in
Rwanda and Burundi. Question: How does geography influence the way this tribe lives? Answer: The hutu tribe has been through the entire African continent.
The tribe finally settled down in Rwanda. Alot of the Hutu members didnt have space so they decided to have some move to Burundi. Whent they were moving other Africans thought they were invading so they killed most of them. Population Approximately 10 million Question: Is the population growing
or shrinking? Why is it difficult to
find accurate numbers for some tribes? Answer: This tribe is shrinking. More and more of these people are dying
because of their race and when they move from place to place. It is difficult to find population numbers for tribes because either some tribes are growing each day or shrinking each day. Language In the Hutu tribe they speak several languages:
Kinyarwanda (Kirundi) French, Swahili. Questions: What is the official language
of the country in which the tribe lives?
Why do you think that there is
an official language in the country?

Answer: The tribe Hutu's main language spoken is Kinyarwanda. There is an official language in the country because then people know if there is an invader they wont speak their language. Cultural Traditions Rwandas are Christians. The ancient Hutu god, Imaana had many human qualities. Imaana meant well, but he was distant from the people. The abazima were the spirits of the ancestors. They could become angry and bring bad luck to the living. Questions: What are the purposes of these
traditions in tribal society? How do these traditions
influence the lifestyles of the tribe?

Answer: The purpose of the traditions in the tribe
is to have their own way of life. They can influence
the lifestyles in many ways, for their culture living
and ther daily living. Ceremonies that mark important transitional periods in a person's life, birth, puberty, marriage, having children, and death. The traditional American wedding ceremony is such a rite of passage, some of the most complex rites of passage occur at puberty, when boys and girls are initiated into the adult world. When a baby is born, the baby and mother stay
alone in their house for seven days. A naming ceremony
is held on the seventh day. Children who live nearby take
part, and food is served. Questions: What is the purpose of this rite of passage?
How does it contribute to the culture? Are there religious elements? Rites of Passage Answer: The purpose is what happens when a new baby is born into a household and starting the new babys life. The way this takes place is the religion the tribe has. Rites of Passage Continued There is a democracy going on between Tutsis and Hutu. Which is causing some of the Hutu tribe members to die in the crossfires. Question: How does this issue impact the lives of the tribe? Current Issues Answer: This is an issue on their lives because their tribe
members are dying daily. http://www.google.com/imgres?q=Hutu+dance&hl=en&safe=active&biw=1280&bih=595&gbv=2&tbm=isch&tbnid=wEgrBPG8ZL5_TM:&imgrefurl=http://www.demotix.com/photo/542704/traditional-rwandan-dance-unites-tutsis-and-hutus&docid=ct7OP7SwBhUPRM&itg=1&imgurl=http://www.demotix.com/sites/default/files/imagecache/large_652x488_scaled/photos/traditional-rwandan-dance-unites-tutsis-and-hutus_542704.jpg&w=652&h=422&ei=wY7WTsLDBoPq2AWpibSpBQ&zoom http://www.google.com/imgres?q=Hutu+clothing&hl=en&safe=active&gbv=2&tbm=isch&tbnid=lFM8Rqx0IDolWM:&imgrefurl=http://wn.com/Congo-Kinshasa&docid=j8tVr8m9nmyMtM&imgurl=http://cdn9.wn.com/pd/f8/13/12afa4c2f0379fa1bc74beb47b2c_grande.jpg&w=468&h=345&ei=DI7WTtXMDcWq2gXAs4mCAQ&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=867&vpy=174&dur=2699&hovh=193&hovw=262&tx=155&ty=111&sig=103799120593684428797&page=3&tbnh=111&tbnw=149&start=43&ndsp=21&ved=1t:429,r:19,s:43&biw=1280&bih=595 http://www.google.com/imgres?q=Hutu+decorations&hl=en&safe=active&biw=1280&bih=595&gbv=2&tbm=isch&tbnid=HdcmBg25zqj5wM:&imgrefurl=http://www.greatsouthland.org/pages/africaphoto.html&docid=uyJLWsHM0J7gKM&imgurl=http://www.greatsouthland.org/images/burundichurch2.JPG&w=549&h=384&ei=Zo7WTtibKaW62gX7hOF8&zoom=1 http://www.google.com/imgres?q=Hutu+rituals&hl=en&safe=active&biw=1280&bih=595&gbv=2&tbm=isch&tbnid=LjzUlBt_onJCpM:&imgrefurl=http://lalqila.wordpress.com/2010/12/04/a-powerful-video-about-hutu-vs-tutsi-veterans-living-with-genocide-survivors-of-and-participants-in-the-rwandan-genocide-talk-about-their-struggle-to-overcome-the-past-and-to-reconcile-thousands/&docid=6cTRtsDu9aIMPM&imgurl=http://english.aljazeera.net/mritems/Images/2010/11/29/2010112911258137797_3.jpg&w=330&h=218&ei=-o7WTub6N4Kg2gWLm4ho&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=969&vpy=275&dur=1622&hovh=174&hovw=264&tx=119&ty=197&sig=103799120593684428797&page=1&tbnh=126&tbnw=166&start=0&ndsp=20&ved=1t:429,r:6,s:0 Work Cited http://www.everyculture.com/wc/Rwanda-to-Syria/Hutu.html http://www.lewrockwell.com/rothbard/rothbard74.html
